    In the middle of the rustic Meroder Wald, right on the Way of St. James, are the meager remains of the former Schwarzenbroich monastery. After the invasion of the French troops at the end of the 18th century, the monastery was abandoned and a little later auctioned. In 1835 the former monastery was so badly damaged in a fire that it was not rebuilt. Today you can browse through the remaining remains and fragments of the wall.

    Relics that only hint. But that is exactly the magic and the charm. The imagination comes alive.

    Completely hidden in the forest and seemingly almost forgotten. In the immediate vicinity there is probably even the remains of a small fish farm, in the form of a small pent-up pool.

    Except for a few old walls, there is nothing left to see.
